Aluminum look or brushed aluminum running boards

Hi. New owner of a MI350 166. Asking this question in the General forum to get max exposure. One issue we have with our 2014 CPO is the water spots on the running boards. I searched this forum and saw remarks about anodized aluminum. The window sticker and the text version of it both show code 846 "Brushed Aluminum Running Boards". I managed to get my hands on the VMI (Vehicle Master Inquiry) for the car and it has code 846 "Aluminum Look Running Boards. I have some anodized aluminum on my old GTO that looks nothing like the running boards. So what's up? Are they not aluminum? I don't want to risk taking off the anodization while trying to make the spots go away. If they are not aluminum, then my feeling is they could be powder-coated. Anyone out there in BenzWorld wanna help out a newbie?
